Description

Featuring new, revolutionary Target Control® (TC™) Level 1 Technology, the Zircon​® SuperScan​® K4 advanced wall scanner is tuned for wood studs while filtering out metallic false positive objects, such as plumbing, conduit, straps, brackets, or ducts, hiding beneath surfaces. The LoLevel​™ Detector and MetalliWarning​™ detect the presence of dangerous, deep, less dense false positives, and metal targets, reducing the chance of accidentally drilling into a piece of metal or plastic pipe. With the addition of AC Scan mode, users can search for hot, unshielded AC voltage.

The SuperScan​® K4 offers five distinct detection modes – TC​™, StudScan, DeepScan​®, Metal Scan, and AC Scan. A 4-mode switch makes it easy to toggle between functions, while the ColorTrip​® Display conveniently details information. The screen illuminates pale blue in TC​™ mode and locates the center, edges, and direction of wood studs, while enabling the user to identify clean, ‘safe-to-drill’ zones by utilizing the new ‘Trust but Verify’ technique. When TC​™ mode is off, the tool will perform in StudScan mode indicating both wood and metal studs. DeepScan​® mode doubles the scanning depth to find wood and metal studs beneath extra layers of drywall or paneling. The dedicated Metal Scan mode helps users identify both ferrous and non-ferrous metals. The Target Spotlight illuminates on screen and the SpotLite​® Pointer shines on the surface being scanned when the center of a stud is found.

  • NEW! Target Control® (TC™) Mode locates the center, edges, and direction of wood studs, and not metal, up to ¾ in. (19 mm) deep behind surfaces. Identifies ‘safe-to-drill’ zones between adjacent drywall screws, nails, and protector plates.
  • StudScan Mode locates center, edges, and direction of wood and metal studs up to ¾ in. (19 mm) deep
  • DeepScan® Mode doubles the scan depth of wood and metal studs up to 1½ in. (38 mm) deep
  • Metal Scan Mode locates ferrous metal up to 3 in. (75 mm) deep and non-ferrous metal up to 1½ in. (38 mm) deep
  • AC Scan Mode locates live, unshielded AC electrical wiring up to 2 in. (50 mm) deep
  • WireWarning® Detection alerts to live, unshielded AC wires up to 2 in. (50 mm) deep
  • LoLevel™ Detector displays low (weak) signal objects, such as plastic water pipes, while in TC™ mode
  • Signal Strength Indicator helps distinguish between shallow and deep targets while in StudScan and DeepScan® modes
  • MetalliWarning™ turns on when metal is detected in TC™, StudScan, and DeepScan® modes
  • ACT™ (Auto Correcting Technology) automatically corrects common errors, such as when scanning begins over a stud
  • Target Spotlight illuminates on screen when target is detected
  • ColorTrip® Display illuminates pale blue in TC™ mode, green in DeepScan® mode, blue in Metal Scan mode, and red in AC Scan mode
  • SpotLite® Pointer shines an arrow-shaped light on the scanned surface to indicate target location
  • “V” marker groove enables accurate marking of target location
  • Low Battery Indicator for optimum performance
  • 9V alkaline battery required, not included
